The Halifax International Security Forum is one of the world’s biggest gatherings of defence and security leaders. Participants at this year’s forum had a chance to rub shoulders with those representing mainly Western interests—even if discussions focused on how the West should deal with China, Russia and nonstate actors in Iraq and Syria.
This report is organized as a comprehensive, thematic look at the forum from the vantage point of an Embassy reporter on the ground at the conference. It includes extensive coverage published by Embassy as well as collections of key quotes from VIP participants.
With security concerns top of mind in Western democracies and in Canada, this roundup offers a look at the priorities of high-ranking members of the Canadian and American militaries, top policymakers and influential personalities.
